“Even at 15F it's worth a stroll!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

We just returned from a quick break in Vieux Quebec, and loved the promenade...Watching the toboganeers was great fun, the view is impressive, and at one end you can watch or participate in the skating and cross country skiing. Beautiful place to watch the sun go down

“Along Terrace”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

. . . well, this is just a part of the whole Terrace, Promenade, Chateau Frontenac experience in Old Quebec. This whole area is great and everything to see is within a decent walk. Lots to see - all good.

Nice statue & beautiful base in honor of the founder of Quebec in a wonderful plaza with great views of the lower city, the Saint Laurence River & the suburbs across the river.

“Pretty place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012 via mobile

Although intended as a monument and memorial, this area is a pretty time for a pleasant stroll. Unfortunately we were there in the rain this time so not quite as nice an experience. Even on a rainy day I carried away a few nice pictures and enlyed the few minutes of walking around.
